I have a wide range of interests when it comes to quilt styles. I like them all, for different reasons. For me the common factor is hand quilting. If I can hand quilt it I like it.
A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a vintage Corduroy quilt top (click pictures to enlarge)
Lots of people thought I was crazy. But I started hand quilting it anyway! Tell me something will be difficult and it becomes a challenge for me to prove that it is not.
So to make it even more of a challenge I bought corduroy fabric for the backing
I tacked it down to the floor.
then layered that batting (this is 80/20 cotton) and top.
Pin basted it.
And I am hand quilting it with various colors of perle cotton thread and an embroidery needle….Big Stitches
Here is the back
I can’t lie…it is not easy…..but It is going to be a really heavy warm quilt!
Since I have shown you a zillion pictures of the garden I decided to try a different approach. I took these pictures through the windows. They aren’t the clearest but you can get an Idea of the view out of the second floor. (click pictures to enlarge)
Friday I spend the Day teaching floral design….I didn’t get any pictures but a friend took a few
Thursday Night was a Gala celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the MSU Horticulture Gardens. I made the centerpieces. (hard to tell from the pictures but they were beautiful)
